Sands of Iwo Jima 1949

From Amazon: This classic World War II actioner has Wayne as a tough but compassionate Marine Corps sergeant, John M. Stryker. Tough name, too. Stryker's job is to turn a bunch of raw recruits into a fighting machine.

Sands of Iwo Jima Movie Review by Movie Addict (5/28/2007)

I can't think of a better movie to watch on Memorial Day. We see John Wayne at his best and we also see him die. Even the Duke is not indestructible.

Wayne played Sgt Stryker; a hard drinking, hard fighting Marine that did his duty. He may not have been popular, but he got his men to the top of a rock.

Clint Eastwood's...
